Professional Development Plan

Stephen Covey is credited with promoting the imperative to begin with the end in mind. As you start your Master of Science in Nursing program, you are asked to consider how your program of study will help you to achieve your long-term goals. In this week of the Foundations of Graduate Study course, you reexamine the professional and academic goals you identified in Week 1. You then create a Professional Development Plan to guide your progress through the MSN program. Doing so not only allows you to articulate how you will stay current in the complex and rapidly evolving field of health care, it also provides an opportunity to apply the principles of scholarly writing introduced in previous weeks of this course.
